Hopefully Harbaugh has some trick to light a fire under these guys. They drive down the field pretty easily sometimes and then they call the most ridiculous plays on 1st and 2nd down, almost as if they want to leave it up to 3rd down or field goal
. I have a few ideas for the offense when we get down in the redzone:
1. Never throw it to Ted Ginn (he's great on special teams and he is good at stretching the field...sometimes)
2. Look to your playmakers when you get down there...Vernon, Crabtree, even Walker and Williams... also don't know why we have stopped throwing screens to Gore or Kendall.
3. Alex should be allowed to run. I don't know if they tell him not to or if he doesn't like the way it looks but when you have 7 free yeards in front of you, just take it.
4. Sometimes I think we should go no huddle or something and have all 3 plays ready in advance. Try and keep the same defensive personel on the field to create the mismatches that we want.
It feels like Harbaugh and Roman call great plays to get down to the redzone but then they get so worried that Alex is going to throw a pick, that they call some pretty vanilla plays and are satisfied with having 3 points instead of a turnover. Don't get me wrong, because i'm ok with field goals over picks, just not field goals on every single drive.
